Just Watch Alex Hulme – Family Tree

Alex Hulme Words: Gary Lambert Alex Hulme’s latest release, Family Tree, has an oxymoronic feel to it.

Just Watch: The Bay Rays – Satisfaction

The Bay Rays Words: Elena Katrina The Bay Rays are filling a bit of a musical hole in my life with this track Satisfaction, and that hole is the kind of sounds that Kings Of Leon used to give me back in the early days. You’d be forgiven at the beginning that it was them … Continue reading

Cupids Words: Julia Grantham I was ecstatic to learn that, finally, this irresistible and powerful track by Cupids has been put out there for the public to enjoy.  Good Things (Come To Those Who Wait) is all at complete earworm; with a strong, clear bass line, super crystal clear vocals and backing vocals and Sid … Continue reading

Pumarosa Words: Nick Jacques According to an excerpt from an interview the spiritual psych London outfit Pumarosa, the aim of their music is to work everyone up into a euphoric state.
